Veteran-Owned Coffee Shop to Open in Indian Land – Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea


South Carolina will soon be home to Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea at 9623 Red Stone Dr., Suite 500. The 2,187-square-foot café is set to open late summer and will offer a globally-inspired menu including premium coffees, teas, pastries, and will also feature a drive-thru option for guests.

Before bringing Sweetwaters to South Carolina, franchisee owner Ryan Harrah, served in the military for the last 22 years. Harrah wanted to bring Sweetwaters’ unique, friendly atmosphere and quality ingredients to the local community.

“I was drawn to Sweetwaters because of their mission, real ingredients, and positive atmosphere,” says Harrah. “I look forward to sharing that positivity with the guests.”

The Sweetwaters’ brand focuses on strong community engagement such as hosting events and partnering with local nonprofits, making it a perfect fit for Indian Land.

The grand opening will include week-long promotions that will be announced on the Sweetwaters facebook and website. The Indian Land opening is one of more than 100 expected to open across the country.
